This should not be connected to the main location but its own entity. If something goes wrong you are secure because you have a back-up copy of the data. • Virus Protection software- Trying to avoid getting a virus and training employees to watch out for signs of virus can be very important, especially through email. Try to avoid opening an email that does not look familiar or looks strange. In Conclusion It is important for an organization to be aware of the risk of technology.
Firewalls are good and help against websites that are illegitimate. It’s also good to have an antivirus on your computer to help protect against people who are trying to hack into your system. Perhaps someone is trying to gain access to your financial information; the antivirus stops them from getting in. Always make sure that when you are checking your e-mail and receive an e-mail with an attachment if you do not know who it is from do not open it. I don’t even open e-mails from people I don’t know whether it has an attachment or not.
Unit 13 I.T. Systems Troubleshooting and Repair Coursework Submission Task one MID WALES STEEL Organisational policies Security: security is a must for a large organisation, and the computers and other technical equipment that have information about the business stored onto that computer. Anti Virus Software: you would have to have anti-virus software on there to be safe. The last thing that you want is someone hacking into the devices and stealing information about your company and knowing your personal information, so having security on those devices is always a must. Individual login Ids and Passwords: every employee should have their own individual login Ids and passwords, to prevent other employees going on other employees work, and looking at their personal information.
This time you already identified which house you want to try to get into. You would walk around the house to try to find a way to get in by checking the doors or windows. This is what a port scan pretty much does is after it finds what machine to attack it scans for open ports so it can get inside the machine. Even though these two types of attacks have the ability to be a big issue on a network if you have a proper setup on the security of the network and certain security devices and software the risk of an attack being successful is very limited. If you just implement a properly configured network and firewall the threat is extremely minimized.
There would be areas in the buildings that would be serviceable by only security personnel/network personnel and implementing physical controls would be a safe fix for the issue. The full layered system would provide adequate security solutions. There would be many vulnerable company resources and this itself and could lead to attention for attack. 4.Certainly in this example all layers of access control are going to be implemented in this example. I would enhance physical, logical and software controls.
Each m-coupon has a unique ID which is used by the system to verify the coupon. However there is always a risk that the ID can be fabricated, m-coupons can always be fabricated and spammed to customers which may damage the marketing campaign and image of the business. For the strategy to be effective, sufficient protocols should be deployed to ensure protection from fabrication of m-coupons and their spamming. Business should create m-coupons for specified short time periods only. Further coupons should be sent to the customers on their request from a designated number or system to help customers differentiate between fabricated and spam coupons from the
Ex-employees having access to the company’s information can put the company’s information at risk. The company must provide solutions where there is policy enforcement which will help maintain security levels while maintaining a large number of users. McBride will use an automated provisioning solution that will instantly grant or revoke access without manual intervention. Risk: Social Engineering This risk presents itself when people are manipulated into taking certain actions or disclosing sensitive information. • Likelihood of occurrence-Medium • Potential impact to the
With many network client devices, this results in the detected network displaying as an unnamed network and the user would need to manually enter the correct SSID to connect to the network. Unfortunately, turning off the broadcast of the SSID may lead to a false sense of security. The method discourages only casual wireless snooping, but does not stop a person trying to attack the network. It is not secure against determined crackers, because every time someone connects to the network, the SSID is transmitted in clear text even if the wireless connection is otherwise encrypted. An eavesdropper can passively sniff the wireless traffic on that network undetected and wait for someone to connect, revealing the SSID.
Because transactions take place over the internet companies have to ensure that the customer’s personal information is safe along with the company’s information. Companies use different types of security programs to keep information safe from computer attacks. Computer attacks on a company can happen when the security program is not effective enough to keep these attacks from happening or from the lack of monitoring of the security program from management. The task of monitoring the security program is given to management, so companies should be held liable for losses sustained in a successful attack made on its AIS by outside sources. In the following an explanation of management’s role and why a company should be held liable.
Network safeguards should include the use of firewalls, encryption of data, the use of digital signatures or certificates as well as web security protocols. Intrusion detection systems use is a great way for the organization to identify attempts or actions to penetrate a system to gain unauthorized access (Sayles, 2013). The organization should also address the issue of ensuring the quality of data being collected, stored and used. Ensuring data quality is also essential to an effective security program and can be managed through monitoring and tracking systems. The organization should ensure they implement a business continuity plan as well as a disaster recovery plan to ensure that the organization can continue operating during an unexpected shutdown or disaster.
